Editorial Reviews Rumba & Milonga – Ultimate Ballroom Collection by Trio Garufa, Viviana Guzman, Festival of Four, Stevan Pasero, Richard Patterson, Christopher Bock, Kai Eckhardt, Guillermo Rios Rumba is a dance term with two quite different meanings. First, it is organically related to the rumba genre of Afro-Cuban music. There are several styles of this rumba, the most common being the guaguancó. Second, it refers to one of the ballroom dances which occurs in social dance and in international competitions. In this sense, rumba is the slowest of the five competitive International Latin dances: the paso doble, the samba, the cha-cha-cha and the jive being the others. This ballroom rumba was also danced in Cuba to a rhythm they call the bolero-son. The Milonga originated in the Río de la Plata area of Argentina and Uruguay and has its roots from various European music. It was very popular in the 1870s. The song was set to a lively 2/4 tempo, and often included musical improvisation. Over time, dance steps and other musical influences were added, eventually giving rise to the tango. Despite 2/4 formula, rhythm is irregular. It is syncopated, consisting of 8 beats with accents on the 1st, (sometimes also 2nd) 4th, 5th, and 7th beats. Sugo Music’s Rumba & Milonga Ballroom Collection is a rhythmic, seductive compilation of very special selected works! Product details Audio CD (June 6, 2011) Number of Discs: 1 Label: Sugo Music
